FDL High Speed Chase Suspect Charged

Bond has been set at $20,000 cash for a 23-year-old Fond du Lac man who led police on a high speed chase. Steven Konitzer made his initial court appearance in Fond du Lac County Court Friday morning. He is facing vehicle theft, eluding an officer, and obstructing an officer charges. Wednesday afternoon officers tried to pull him over for reckless driving near 4th and Main Streets. Eventually he lost control in the area of 8th and Lloyd Streets striking a car and pickup truck. Two porches were also damaged. He then took off on foot, but got caught after a short foot chase. He was taken to St. Agnes Hospital, but suffered only minor injuries. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for next Thursday.
